Soffits are helpful when used to conceal mechanical systems and fill space in rooms where cabinets dont go all the way to the ceiling. But they also often present a choppy look and they can easily date a room, since most homes today use other methods to conceal HVAC and the like. Some homeowners may want to remove them if they serve no functional purpose. “A professional can poke a hole to see,” says Bob Zuber of Morgante Wilson Architects. “It may only be a few thousand dollars to remove them and finish off the top of the cabinets.”
Some design professionals are accommodating pets other than dogs and cats. Spring Creek Design, a design-and-build firm in Honey Brook, Penn., has designed a bunny room and pig barn. “The bunnies were given a corner bedroom with two windows, since they like light,” says Liz Smutko, the companys brand manager. The barn has two indoor stalls, housing one pig in each, and comes with mobile fenced-in areas, so the animals can be rotated through and grass and soil cleaned and repaired as needed she says. Finally, Lynch has seen many cases where chickens are coming home to roost in glamorous coops. “People are finding it a good way to teach their children about nature and show respect for animals,” she says.
